When Googling it doesn’t work: How to help students learn. See more state education news here

When Lorie Fitzgerald saw how her daughter Angelina struggled to keep up with her third-grade classwork at Copper Creek Elementary School in Deer Valley Unified School District, she knew she had to find a way to help her student learn.

“Angelina has a developmental delay, because of this, she has struggled to close the learning gap,” Fitzgerald said. “For so long Angelina was just sitting in class, but not fully understanding what was going on.”

While many schools offer before, during or after-school academic tutoring to help students learn who need more assistance, some schools do not have the resources to provide that service. That leaves parents with the decision of how and where to seek help for their child.

Fitzgerald turned to LearnerLink, which partners with school districts to provide quality certified teachers to help students with personalized learning in K-12 subject areas, skill development, enrichment and college prep through in-person interaction and online-learning opportunities.

“Tackle football is like smoking,” a youthful voice-over says as a smiling, motherly type lights a cigarette for one of the pre-teen players. “The younger I start, the longer I’m exposed to danger.”

″Tackle Can Wait ” is part of a campaign by the Concussion Legacy Foundation to steer children under 14 years old into flag football and away from the contact version of the sport.
